This is a short little novella packed full of insights about life and death. It's a short Christmas story told by a father to his son - but it's not a normal Christmas story. The father has been an absentee father and has just found out that he has cancer. He really isn't sure of what feelings his grown son even has about him because he had put his goals of wealth and success way ahead of the time he spent being a parent. When he has the chance to do something to help someone else, he first needs to find out how his son feels about him and whether his life had even been worth anything to his son and the world. This is the basis of his Christmas story.
This book made me cry and also caused me to question some decisions that I am making in my own life and try to do better with my priorities. It's a wonderful thought provoking story.
